Warlord of Mars


Published August 26, 2007


LibriVox recording of The Warlord of Mars, by Edgar Rice Burroughs. Read by JD Weber.

Warlord of Mars is an Edgar Rice Burroughs science fiction novel, the third of his famous Barsoom series. John Carter continues his quest to be reunited with his wife, the princess Dejah Thoris, and discovers more fantastic creatures and ancient mysterious Martian races. (Summary from Wikipedia)

Cataloger's Note: Our reader, JD, disappeared before recording the last chapter. Hope he's ok! After waiting several months, I recorded the last chapter so we could get this fine book out to the public. When JD returns, I'll be happy to replace my recording with his.

Subject: Pretty good book in barsoom series
The adventures of John Carter continue - you will want to listen to previous books so you get the story line. I have to concur with earlier reviewer that John Carter seems a bit too invulnerable. But eh, I am listening for the story line because I started with Thuvia, Maid of Mars and wanted to back up and get the whole story.

What interests me is the underlying message of hope in this series; that different people of different skin colors can come together in unity and as one people.

The earlier recordings are a bit high in pitch, I dropped the treble and upped the base to filter that out.

Subject: Great read, but the story is so-so
To me, this story in the series became tiresome. Frankly, the ominpotence of our hero becomes a little too extreme for me in this story, and the science fiction aspect of it all has practically vanished.
JD, on the other hand, has at this point become an accomplished reader, and it's sad that he has stopped submitting stuff for LibriVox.

Subject: Great!
This one was very greatly and professionally read from the start to the end, I'm quite disappointed to hear that JD has disappeared and is not recording more of this series :D
Anyway the sudden change of voice in the last chapter and the recognition of the by now familiar voice of Kara, is a delightful and surprising bonus addition to the entertainment of the reader who attains the end of the book.
Thanks for the beautiful reading!
